What people are saying:

Chicago’s bridges are amazing because they are movable, just like suspension bridges. This museum is in the bridgehead of Michigan Bridge, and the entrance fee is $5. It introduces the bridges and rivers of Chicago. When the bridge opens and closes, spend 10 dollars to see how the mechanism works.

    Great little museum on the bridgeports and ecology of the Chcago River! Especially great if you don't have a lot of time in the day or want a unique local perspective of the city!
